Holiday Cards + Link Love

My husband has the week off of work so I’m using this time to catch up on my to-do list…and right now, holiday cards are on my mind…

I’ve been using Minted for awhile now (remember these business cards?). Their designs are so beautiful. But I’m totally stuck and need your help. If you had to pick one of these cards which would it be?

I’m having a hard time choosing! I’ll be anxious to hear which one you like best. Let me know in the comments. 🙂

    I love Minted and will definitely be taking the plunge and using them this year for our Christmas cards! I love your first and second choices, but I’m sure you’ll pick what suits your family & style best. 🙂 Thank you for sharing the piece on ruining our kids…what a powerful read and a great reminder.

    I like the last one with the twenty 14 on it. Thanks for the recommendation, and the reminder that I need to start getting my holiday cards going! Hope you have an awesome day. xo

    Do you write a letter to go with your card? If not, I think doing the stats card is a good idea…I know I like hearing those little details. 🙂

    I’m no help because I like all of the choices! I always write a letter, but I understand that everyone else doesn’t so I think the stats one is neat if you don’t also send a letter. Looking forward to hearing what you choose!

    Confession: I gave up on doing Christmas cards several years ago. I could never seem to get them out on time, and the sheer time and expenses involved overwhelmed me! But I SO love getting Christmas cards from other people ;). Vary way, I like the simplicity of the first one. So pretty!

    Wow, holiday cards! I can feel the holidays coming and preparing some holiday cards and gifts is a brilliant idea to start with.

    Receiving a card as a gift is still priceless. Great to have one always.
